Stack Watch by Peter Turner
What time is it?
What position is the 5 of clubs in mnemonica?
One quick glance at your watch during performance can tell you both pieces of information.
THE STACK WATCH is the world's first anti-memory wearable for stack work in card magic.
A covert, must-wear device for deciphering a stacked deck... Without you having to ever know stack.
Dynamically tracking the ever-changing position of every card in a mixed deck.
There's a reason millions of gym memberships go to waste and diets always start 'NEXT' Monday.
People are busy and the lowest task on their priority list gets kicked to the curb.
Mnemonica is without a doubt, one of the strongest, most incredible tools in magic. There's a reason Blaine's TV and private performances contain a lot of mem-deck stuff... but it's damn hard to learn.
You always tell yourself you will, but you won't.
The good news with THE STACK WATCH is that it puts Mnemonica back on the table... Like a giant calorie-free sundae for magic.
You don't need to try to learn it, because the watch is there for you, exactly when you need it. It's instant, requires no work, no memory songs, no concentration and no testing.
Everything you can do with mnemonica has just been made simple, because you don't have to learn it.
Don't say I will. Say I don't need to.
If magic were a video game, THE STACK WATCH would be a cheat code to unlock a level 9000 Wizard with unparalleled powers.
The bezel silently surf's around the dial and is completely bidirectional.
This ability to move in a fluid motion can help you track the decks order, even if it's cut.
Something, up until now, only the most skilled memory-workers could master.
This allows you to achieve STACKED DECK mastery. Everything taught in Tamariz' Mnemonica or Pit Hartling's incredible book 'In Order To Amaze' is now possible to perform with the STACK WATCH.
Twist & track every card in every position of the deck. If the spectator names position 16 and the 5 of clubs, you just twist the dial to that position. Now it shows that you need to cut the 8 of hearts to the face of the deck to ensure the ACAAN is bang on.
Quality over Quantity
This isn't a gimmick. The word gimmick suggests it's cheap, disposable and into minute 14 of it's 15 minutes of fame.
The stack watch is a utility timepiece. A tactical decoder that just happens to be hidden on a high-quality watch. No expense spared.
The black steel band secures a Japanese movement timepiece powered by a quartz ultra SL68 movement.
No software updates and no pairing.
Stack Watch's dial is coated with a luminous absorption material to ensure the key markers are with you 24/7.
It can go as long as you can - and beyond.
Every idea is like a rock. Every product is a polished jewel.
The jewel was ALWAYS there, under the rough exterior, but it needed exposing. That refining within this industry is where classics are born.
In mid-2019, Peter Turner approached the Ellusionist team at a Penthouse party in Las Vegas. He had the idea of putting a stack crib on a watch face. Instead of numbers, it was playing cards.
52 minutes, washed away by the more important information. The deck.
He'd had the idea for years, but has never released a device to the industry before... and didn't know where to start.
He didn't know STACK, he'd never even tried to learn it, but this new idea would make his efforts obsolete anyway. It just needed to be realized.
Fast forward 14 days and 6 hours later and a DHL delivery driver knocked his door with the very first STACK prototype.
The numbers weren't perfect, the band wasn't tailored, but it was PROOF. Proof that it DOES work.
Later that day, Geraint Clarke joined Pete on a catch-up Skype call and said "Why don't you put the cards on a silent, bidirectional bezel. Like a divers watch."
That one refinement would allow magicians to re-track the order of a mixed (cut multiple times) stacked deck, with nothing but a twist. Something that looks natural and can be done right under the spectators nose.
The STACK WATCH was born.
In the following months, the Team has received, worn, used and broken tens of prototypes in their pursuit of perfection.
Now, customers can be safe in the knowledge that this wasn't a one and done product. We've produced something for us that we can also sell. Not something to sell, that we'll never use.

Filiphmm... well... I was absolutely sold to the watch as it sounds like a great tool. I immediately ordered it, because I thought I will get a great watch and a tool I can use for magic.
somehow I get mixed feelings now. The bezel moves extremely lightly that means when ever I wanna perform I need to check that it is set correctly at 12 o'clock. The steel band is a bit starched right out of the box and on the sides of the watch where the band goes the watch itself is scratched from probably factory that placed the band in place.
I am still happy with the watch I do believe that it will be used, but I am somewhat a bit disappointed at the same time...
I guess mostly because of the first impression that didn't tell me oh wow. amazing...
MarcoBeing a watch guy. I was quite impressed with the watch and design. One of my spring bars was bent. So that made me decide to switch mine to an elegant leather band. The routines taught are great. I’m enjoying mine.
GregThe watch is well made, packing is great, teaching is good... the only problem? The letters and numbers for the stack reminder on the watch are for GOOD EYES ONLY.... way to tiny to be of any use to some. oh well, guess I'll be selling mine... Can't use what you can't read.
NicholasI got my Stack Watch a few days ago and I was impressed with the quality of the watch. The weight is really nice. I adjusted the size by removing the links with the included watch tool. Not only is this an amazing tool to use for mentalism its also a beautiful watch. I'll be wearing this daily and the beauty is I'm always ready to perform.
JamesFirst I will say the idea and effects possible are great. The watch is a must if you do not want to take the time to learn the stack. All this is worth the $50.00 by itself. Now the watch comes in nice package as most Ellusionist items do. The watch is nothing out of the ordinary. The band is very flimsy and not easy to size, at least it was for me. I wanted to learn the stack and this is a excellent introduction to it. Did not buy it for the watch, just mentioning it if you were wondering. I am not comfortable handing a deck to someone to "shuffle". Cutting fine, but after that it is dicey. I will use this for one great effect and then maybe a add on if no shuffling. My preference. Enjoy your watch. I have had fun so far learning the stack.
FarhadI've tried to learn Mnemonica for years now, but have not had the time to fully commit it to memory. This watch makes learning the stack instant, because it's right on your wrist. It opens the door for so many people to a whole new field of miracles.
The watch itself is of good quality, especially the watch face, and it will last years and years. And the teachings on the videos by Pete are outstanding; plenty of golden nuggets here and there. If, you've never done stack effects, buy this. If you've done stack effects for a long time, buy it as well, because this is a wonderful safety net incase you do any wrong calculations and you will definitely learn something new from Pete's subtleties.
SummaryI got mine yesterday and just adjusted the band today. It feels amazing. Not only is it an awesome tool. It's also a really nice watch!
MarcoGreat watch, great quality. The teaching is spot. The watch is built tough. I however opted for a leather band and switched mine to leather. Being a watch guy made it easy.
RyanThis is an absolutely stellar product. I got into a car accident 7 years ago and I’ve got trouble remembering things often. This is exactly what I was looking for in order to help me remember the stack. Awesome product - awesome video instruction - GET IT!
UlysessWinner!!! Winner!!!! Winner!!!! I am so happy I was one of the first to preorder the watch. I am learning the stack and am struggling with it, so this watch will act as a good reference during performance. I am still going to engrave the mnemonica stack, but I know it will take some time. I got my watch sized down because it was too big and now it fits perfectly. I am super stoked about this purchase. I can't believe there were so many people complaining before it arrived! Glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews. I suggest you all put your order in because this watch look even more elegant in person.
